I LOVE JELL-O Y’ALL!!
And I’m not even a fan of nanners, so I’ve been dying to come up with a trifle with some kind of chocolate or cookie.
Anyone in that boat with me?
Y’all are about to experience the best, richest Jell-O pudding in the world.
BEST EV-A I tell you!
Start with an 8 ounce brick of cream cheese, and a can of condensed milk. Blend that up.
If you’re cream cheese came right out of the fridge, sometimes I’ll microwave it for a good 20 seconds to soften it up.
Enter the star of our show. Jell-O CHEESECAKE FLAVOR!!!!
Notice I got the smaller 3 oz box, but the larger one will be just fine too.
Was anyone else not aware of this fantastic flavor and immediately reeling with ideas of future Jell-O desserts?
Add in the box of Jell-O and 2 cups milk.
Oh, and the vanilla. I felt special, so I added the vanilla bean paste. Gives it some special vanilla bean sparkle.
Mmm. Taste test that one. Yumm-o. Feel free to set in the fridge for a few to set up, or not.
Then fold in half your Cool Whip, save the remainder to spread along the top of the dessert.
“Folding” means you use a spatula, not a whisk, slice the blob in half with the spatula, then come up the sides of the bowl. That make sense? Anyone need a folding tutorial?
Now it’s time to layer. Enter the Biscoff cookie. Many of you are aware of the Biscoff trend. The Biscoff spread is crushed Biscoff cookies, akin to peanut butter. Biscoff spread = crack.
The cookies are often served on airlines, and taste like a flavorful graham cracker. Makes EXCELLENT pie crusts.
Or trifles. Just sayin’.
I found these cookies at World Market (Cost Plus), or a nicer grocery store. (HEB didn’t have them, but Randall’s did.)
I used these cute little individual sized trifle bowls.
So, I broke up some Biscoff, and tasted a few.
Then added a fine layer of pudding mix.
Then pieces of brownie bites….
And more pudding, continue the layers as you wish until you reach the top.
Top with more cookies, then Cool Whip.
I used a little cookie/brownie garnish, and set it in the fridge to firm up.
The Biscoff cookies get soft, just like in Nanner Puddin’, but the cookies taste like pie crust.
One friend said it tasted like “Fall,” or “Pumpkin Pie,” (haha) – I think because of the flavorful Biscoff….
which leads me to my next topic….
I think my next trifle will be Biscoff Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifle. Ohhh yeahhhh….
~Peace, Love, and Puddin’ Y’all!
